User
10/10/2018 - 12:40

I don't want it to include row 7, 8, 9

User
10/10/2018 - 12:40

for the whole row of 18

Excelchat Expert

Excelchat Expert

Excelchat Expert

one minute

User
10/10/2018 - 12:43

I think it might just change automatially

User
10/10/2018 - 12:43

I don't think F18 needs it

User
10/10/2018 - 12:43

do not

Excelchat Expert
10/10/2018 - 12:44

So, the formula in F18 should not change?

User
10/10/2018 - 12:45

I don't believe so

User
10/10/2018 - 12:45

it's not averaging

User
10/10/2018 - 12:45

Excelchat Expert
10/10/2018 - 12:45

Not averaging

User
10/10/2018 - 12:45
